As a very old fighter pilot who has not been upside down since 1992, the flight was beyond great fun. To be allowed to do what you like with the A/C was beyond anything I had hoped for. Go fly it while there is still a where are you to do it. History does not stand still

I was able to experience Stallion 51 and fly the Texan -- and it was incredible. A buddy of mine with a Single Engine License flew the Mustang -- and Steve and I flew the Texan. We all were able to link up in formation before breaking off for a series of acrobatic moves. As a first time pilot -... More

There is only one thing better than taking an orientation flight with Stallion 51, it is flying a formation flight at Stallion 51 with a friend to share the experience. Glad you enjoyed the flights and have the video to relive the fun you had. We look forward to sharing the cockpit the you again. KT Budde-Jones More

I highly recommend visiting the highly professional and friendly crew of Stallion 51. The chance to actually fly a piece of America's history was the ultimate honor to commemorate our aviator heroes. Thanks to the staff, pilots and mechanics of Stallion 51, these memories live on.

The sound of a Merlin engine gives me chills ! It's a powerful and invigorating sound that tells me a great flight awaits the passenger and pilot. My husbands sixth flight with Lee Lauderback was as thrilling and exciting as his first one back in 1994. Stallion 51 offers an hour briefing, an hour flight and then an hour de-briefing... More

Bravo! I can’t give Stallion 51 and Steve Larmore enough kudos. After being out of the cockpit for 16 years I decided it was time to get into the T-6. After the start up of the big P&W radial, taxi out, and take-off - a smile was glued on my face for the next hour. Basic manuevers, rolls of all... More

So glad you had a great time at the controls of Stallion 51's T-6 Texan. The Texan is like a draft horse doing dressage, once she is in the air she is graceful and responsive. We look forward to sharing the cockpit with you again. You are correct, "Nothing sounds like big and round". KT Budde-Jones More

If you are looking for the thrill of a life time provided by an entertaining proficient professional this is it. This was my third flight (2 P-51 & 1 T-6) at Stallion 51. Stallion 51 is way past the top of the list.

After spending 1000 hours flying combat in Vietnam and then not climbing into a plane for 40 years it was incredible to fly with Stallion 51.

Some events in life become the standard by which others are judged. Taking an hour ride in a Mustang is one of those.
